Marcos Ribeiro, Regional Manager Onet Portugal

Why did you choose to join Onet?

I joined Onet Brazil in 2021. Right from the start, I was very enthusiastic because the Onet Group's values - listening, respect, boldness - resonated strongly with my personal convictions. Listening enables us to respond ever more effectively to the needs of the people with whom we interact, be they employees, customers or business partners. This is reflected in the company motto: Stronger together!
I was also attracted by the Group's constant search for new services, its expansion into new territories, its search for new skills, its focus on excellence in order to innovate and differentiate itself in the global service market.

What are your missions for Onet's development in Portugal?

My main mission is to develop and fully consolidate Onet's position in the Portuguese market. This market has grown substantially in recent years, but it still needs a great deal of professionalization in the services field. My challenge is to drive Onet's expansion in Portugal sustainably and profitably, and to make Onet one of the top 5 service companies in Portugal by 2028, in both the private and public sectors.

What is your ambition for 2024?

Strengthen Onet's position on the Portuguese market by ensuring the commercial development of each service, cleaning, technical maintenance of buildings and logistics.
Develop operational excellence for our customers and in our target markets, such as industry, buildings, retail, logistics, education and healthcare, by bringing Onet expertise to bear. 

Portugal, a country enjoying rapid economic growth

Since the end of the Covid crisis, Portugal's indicators have all been in the green. The country is showing a clear trend towards growth, healthier public accounts and job creation.

In view of the positive economic findings both from our subsidiary and from the country's trend indicators, Onet Iberia has made Portugal one of its growth priorities.

To embody our ambitions in Portugal, and to represent a company such as ours, with its history, its many skills and its international dimension, we opted for internal mobility. Marcos Ribeiro perfectly matched the profile we were looking for, both in terms of his knowledge of the Onet Group and his ability to embody Portugal's development ambitions. We immediately saw internal mobility as an opportunity to put all our experience in transition support to good use. It's a real motivational tool for those who want to take on a new challenge and discover a new country. I'm certain that without this tailor-made support, Marcos Ribeiro's excellent adaptation and assumption of his new position would not have been as dazzling, and our internal development as dynamic.

Onet present in Portugal since 2015

The Group has been present in Portugal since 2015, with its origins in the extension of the cleaning contract for Primark stores. With sales of around €3 million a year, Portugal comes under the operational management of Spain.

Our subsidiary offers cleaning, technical building maintenance and logistics services in sectors such as industry, construction, retail, logistics, education, healthcare...
